LJ's Journey to be Slim by Sixty
I am LJ and I am 57 years old. I have been yoyo dieting for over 40 years. OMG!! You name it, I've tried it over the years. Every diet in the book. But this time feels different. This time I just know it's going to work.
I joined Slimming World six weeks ago and tonight, 1st January 2014 I received my 1 stone award. The Slimming World plan just seems so easy to me. I am not dieting. This is an enjoyable way to eat. At last I have learned the way to feed my body the nutrients it needs and it is appreciating that and I feel more alive than I have for a very long time. I no longer crave sugary, carby, high fat foods. The fact that, when I go to WI, I am losing weight, seems just amazing to me. I don't understand how this works, but I am very happy that it does.
i decided to start this diary to record the journey my mind and body take to get to my ideal weight. When better than the first day of a new year. I am putting no time goal on my weight loss. After all, what is a year or two after 40 years of trying and failing. I still have over 5 stone to lose so I am here for the long haul. If anyone wants to join me, your input will be much appreciated. So, here goes!
